ironically, the Use Case that motivated this was the one @makxdekkers referred to where Profiles where cataloged, and resources describing different aspects them were modelled as Distributions.  So OK to say that example is "wrong" (i.e. inconsistent with DCAT semantics) 

- the Profiles Ontology is not dependent on DCAT so its not affected.  DCAT simply has no reusable way of attaching resources to dcat:Resources in general - only a specific sense is supported for dataset distributions and people will have to "roll their own" using other vocabularies or just keep using DCAT in catalogues in looser interpretations than the DCAT spec.
